La masiva peregrinación de musulmanes a la Meca se ve afectada por la gripe A

Próximos a la masiva peregrinación de musulmanes a la Meca, se ha desatado una verdadera psicosis, y es que el denominado Hajj que comenzará el 19 de noviembre próximo, reunió 2,4 millones de personas el año pasado, en un escenario reducido que promueve las aglomeraciones. Los casos de gripe se multiplicaron en Arabia Saudí y la muerte de varias personas que habían visitado recientemente la ciudad sagrada, ha encendido una luz de alerta ante el temor de que la enfermedad se expanda porque la “Meca recibe a millones de peregrinos, hombro con hombro. Si uno porta el virus lo puede contagiar a decenas de miles”.

Surge entonces un debate religioso complicado porque “La sharia (ley islámica) está dirigida a salvaguardar las vidas humanas de todo daño”, pero también se plantean ciertos condicionamientos financieros para la economía saudí que en torno del Hajj (hoteles, restaurantes, etc) mueve 7.000 millones de dólares cada año. El temor a la epidemia y las cancelaciones podrían afectar seriamente esta importante fuente de ingresos.
